I don’t know if I didn’t notice it earlier but Twitter now let’s their users change their Twitter pages to the redesigned environment just for a preview. You may also revert it back to the current setup. There were news about it and even a video about the New Twitter. I tried the new one and here’s what I got – comparing the old and new pages:

One thing I noticed is that when you click on a tweet, the right side panel will display things related to the tweet – who retweeted it, tweets that mention some same stuff, or other tweets from the same user. Here’s an example:

I’m not sure if everything is really there just as the Twitter guys promised. Got to check it out more. It would also take me some time to get use to the new page. And I got to change my background, again.

If you want to revert back to the old page, click your username at the top right portion of the page and select “Leave preview”.
